Our Library's Beginning:

Brief History of the Bonney Memorial Library (view PDF Presentation below)

PDF Presentation


After 84 years of service to the townspeople of Cornish and nearby communities, a new era for the Bonney Memorial Library is beginning. We are planning to expand. Scott Simons Architects of Portland were engaged to design a two-level addition, doubling our space, and their excellent plans are now complete.

The designs provide for more convenient and efficient rooms, handicap accessibility, and expanded parking. They create more comfortable places for reading, for meetings, and for work at computers. We will have up-to-date materials, technology improvements, and new, motivating programs for people of all ages—children, young adults, adults, and families.

Detailed sketches and drawings of the architects' plans are pictured below.

These are exciting times for our library. We invite you to participate in this adventure.
